LG Dishwasher Water not draining fast enough, OE error code
My dishwasher is 15 months old. When I first started using the dishwasher I noticed occasionally I would come back and see error code flashing on the dishwasher. I would always restart the cycle and it would complete with no problem. Starting this week, my dishwasher started giving an OE error code every time I ran it. I called a company to come out and take a look at it. The technician looked at it and told me that I needed to remove my floor in the kitchen so he could pull the dishwasher back and look at the drain hose. He told me it looked like the drain hose was clogged because when he blew on the drain hose he didn't see any bubbles. It would cost me $260 to fix the hose, plus my cost to remove the laminate. After he left I took the drain hose off of the connection to the garbage disposal and put it in a bucket then I ran the dishwasher. The water came out of the dishwasher into the bucket and filled it up. When I lifted the hose up to the height of the dishwasher drain, the water stopped coming out. Can anyone explain why it would drain when it was low but stop when I raise it? Is the technician right and I have a clogged hose?
Bu iyi bir soru mu?
If it would be clogged, it would be clogged in any position. Have you removed the drain hose and taken a look at the pump? What model LG is your dishwasher? Any chance you still have factory or dealer warranty?
Yes, it is still under extended warranty.
At this point I haven't had a chance to remove the lament flooring. I'm planning on removing it this morning so I can pull the dishwasher out and take a better look at the drain line. I didn't think it made any sense that it would drain well is the line was low but wouldn't if I raised the line. I was thinking the pump might be putting out low pressure but I wasn't sure how to determine if that was the case.
Update: Called the original installer out to look at the dishwasher. He removed a excess drain line and moved the high loop from under the cabinet next to the sink to under the sink and it worked fine. When I called the warranty service company to look at the dishwasher they told me the drain line was clogged, that it wasn't covered by the warranty and that it would be $269. Bottom line: if it doesn't make sense, don't take the warranty repair mans word for it. Also, just because it have a warranty doesn't mean that they will fix it for free.
Warranty never worked for. In my case it was the pump. Warranty repair person says it is not pumping strong enough and it was not under warranty.
